A LITTLE BIT ABOUT EARLANDO…
Earlando has not always existed as we now know and love it.
It has had several different lives and has many a story to tell! The story began in the 1960’s when a young Mr Earle and his step father Mr Andersen, merged their two family names together to create what we now call “Earlando”. When they arrived, Earlando was nothing more than a beach shack surrounded by acres of scrub and bush land. Friends and family told them they were crazy to think anything could be done with this spot of land – little did they know!
One of the first plans for Earlando was to make it into a farm and a working cattle station. Paddocks were cleared and cattle were bought and raised. This original plan is still going strong today with a small herd of very lucky cows who live quietly on the land and enjoy the views!
CULTIVATING THE LAND
The next stage was to cultivate the land and grow crops. A few different crops were grown here; avocados, pawpaws and of course mangoes. Whilst the avocados and the pawpaws have disappeared, the mango tress still remain and play an important part in our famous Mango Daiquiris! Yum!
By the 1970’s construction for what many locals grew to know and love was underway and Earlando Resort was born. Famous for being the local hangout, a seaside restaurant and campsite, but above all for its mean seafood smorgasboard Saturdays! if you look carefully when you arrive at Earlando, the original sign seen in this photo is still as clear as day!
TAKING A BREAK
In the year 2003, it was time for the family and the natural coastland to take a break from running a campsite and the resort came to a close. In 2016, the family decided to open up the beautiful surroundings once more, however this time for private events and weddings.
Friends of the family agreed to be guinea pigs for our first wedding in 2016, and with 165 guests, they certainly threw us in at the deep end! The wedding was a huge success and we must admit, we caught the love bug!
A SPECIAL PLACE
Several years on and all we can say is WOW! After hosting our share of weddings and events it’s clear this is what Earlando is destined for. Guest after guest say “there’s something about the venue”, “it just feels special”, “you can’t see it in photos but when you’re here it’s electric”. We can’t wait to welcome you and your family!

“If we could get married again, we would choose Breanna as our wedding planner, everytime.
Her professionalism, time management skills and eye for detail are next level. Planning a wedding during Covid was already difficult but Breanna had a beautiful way of reassuring us it would all turn out and to focus on the positive, which ultimately was us being married. Breanna made us feel like family and nothing was ever to big, no question or request was ever too small or silly.
If you’re looking for a wedding planner definitely consider Breanna, if you’re looking for someone to be apart of your family and invest 100% and give her absolute everything in your special day then Breanna is your lady!
Without a doubt, our wedding wouldn’t of been the most magical and perfect day of our lives without Breanna! We cannot thank you enough! “
“Breanna is wonderful to work with and couldn’t do enough to help plan our special day. She ensured that our preparation prior to the wedding and also on the day was stress free. This allowed us to enjoy our wedding day knowing that everything was in Bree’s capable hands. We would highly recommend Breanna’s wedding planning service.“
“Bree is an amazing a wedding planner! She has the capability of identifying and adapting to the type of bride that she is working with. Leading up to my wedding she gave me so much support and answered every question that I had. On the wedding day she ensured I didn’t have a worry in the world. It was the most stress free, beautiful day of my life. Everything ran smoothly and was perfect. I would highly recommend Bree’s service.”
